This show has been commercially released as "Road Trips Vol 1.1"
Glad there is a board, albeit a flawed one, of this excellent show - Road Trips strikes again....
Set 1 - Pretty powerful energy throughout; got to love that Jack Straw set closer - kind of a rarity, no? Do I have to bring up how lame Easy to Love You is again? OK, I won't ;)
Set 2 - Dancin' is simply FUNKED OUT - just listen to Brent go haywire on the wurlitzer or whatever that is - the transition into Frnaklin's is just so scathing, disco-slash crazy you'll be hard-pressed not to tip your hat accordingly!
After He's Gone they roll into a fantastic, balls-out rock jam teasing Caution, Gloria, whatever - great experimentation and followed post-Space by an absolutely thunderous Wharf Rat. Show kind of meanders after this, but there is a some seriously raw, red meat in this show -
Subject: Standard set list,
and standard performance before Drums/Space, after which they pull out all the stops for the finalé. Would maybe buy Road Trips 1.1 for that jam & other highlights, but not this whole show.
I had a blast at this show and remember it well. It was a ton of fun listening to it again at work this morning. Love this Archive! There was a great vibe and high energy in the crowd and on the stage. Probably the most memorable Jack Straw I heard the Dead play live.. An amazing second set with a stellar Franklins Tower and He's Gone... the He's Gone jam into drums is a beautiful thing.... in fact... think I'll play the second set again right now!
Subject: Gloria Breakout?
at about 3:25 in track 15 it sounds to me like the band plays an instrumental Gloria for a couple of minutes. The second set before drums is a smoker!
Subject: just a correction
this isnt the 11/5 show, this is the 11/9 show. still good though
Subject: What a gem
A hot show from a hot tour. The pre-drums second set is some of the hottest music you will ever hear!
